NEWS ITEM in Jersey Evening Post of Saturday 3 June 1916

The Naval Battle - Jerseymen Amongst Those who have Perished. The terrible news of the great naval battle has cast quite a gloom over the Island for a number of Jerseymen are known to have been serving on one or another of the vessels that have been lost. Amongst these is Engineer Lieutenant Stanley Nelson de Quetteville, only son of Mr & Mrs de Quetteville of 13 David Place. Lieutenant de Quetteville, who was 28, had taken up the profession of an engineer and some years ago decided to go out to Canada where he entered the Canadian Navy, being subsequently transferred to the Imperial British Navy. He was serving on the Indefatigable and the news of his loss has been conveyed by the Admiralty to the sorrowing parents. About 12 months ago the deceased officer was married and to the widow and to his parents we would tender our sincere sympathy in their bereavement.
A total of 26 Jerseymen are believed to have lost their lives in the Naval Battle of Jutland on 31 May 1916 and on HMS Hampshire which sank on 6 June 1916 after striking a mine off the Orkneys.
